Digital media manager with t6426


Which operating system ?

What happens when you tried to plug-in SD card to the computer?


Have you made any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?


To make the SDHC be recognized by the computer, we need to ensure that the card reader works in Windows 7 first. Please check if the card reader is recognized properly by the computer and you have installed the driver for it.


Meanwhile, you can plug some other storage cards to the card reader and see how it works.


I would suggest you to refer the link below
A Secure Digital (SD) card may not be recognized on a Windows 7 based computer.

Uninstall all the Generic USB drivers and reinstall.


1. Open Device Manager.

2. In "Disk Drives" dropdown, uninstall the "Generic SD/MMC USB device" drive.

3. Restart computer.

4. Insert SDHC card.




Hope this helps.

Emachines et1331 card reader driver


You should download the driver again for them and just run it into computer ..The driver it is available on the support site of the manufacturer..
choose teh correct model and the right operation system so that it iwll work proper..
To be sure that the driver it is all you need..just take a look in the device manager ..if the card reader appear under devices but either unrecognized or in yellow with a exclamation sign on it ..it means the devices are working ..but just end the driver ..if you changed the operation system ..you need the drivers for it to match .
by the way ...if you installed windows 7 on 64 ..the drivers should be for 64 system too ..
here are the drivers for this model

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=1811
download and install the chip-set drivers ..In there should be teh driver for the-card reader too ..
do not be alarmed if the drives are not displayed ..it may be the case that it will display just the one used and when you use them ..Just install the driver s and after that take a look into the device manager and see if they are present there.. to do so click right on computer ..and choose properties and in there select device manager ..If they seam not to be present click right on storage devices..and select scan for hardware changes ..and will add them without driver if they are detected..If no detection is displayed it means the reader is not functional anymore or it cables are disconnected or damaged ..and this is the reason for refusing to load drivers..it simply do not see any device in the system ..
In this case get another card reader or use an external one ..

My computer doesn't see sound devices ! AMD ATHLON DUAL 4000 +


*First go to your device manager, right click my computer> properties> hardware> device manager.. Look for any yellow flags. I am quite certain your sound driver will have a yellow flag on it.

*If there are NO yellows, this means windows isn't seeing your card at all. Definetly a hardware issue. (Ensure whether Plug & Play devices are started in services)

*If you see a yellow for your sound card your driver is messed up. Hopefully it doesn't say "Unknown", it should say something like Creative Sound Blaster Live (WDM) or something. If it does say something like Creative, or, Nvidia, or something, chances are you can uninstall the bad driver, reboot, and wallah.

However, it is not always that easy. There is a good chance your sound card is onboard, and some drivers for onboard sound cards are a doozy. Please let me know if this works.

solution:

3.On this disk management window, you can see some drives including the portable drive. Right click on your portable drive and click change drive letter and paths.
4. Now a assign a new drive letter which is not being used by any of your drives in My Computer.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
another way to solve

After plugging in the device. Go to device manager (In run type "devmgmt.msc") In Device manager go to "Universal serial bus

controllers" It should list the storage devices that you have connected to your PC. Right click and then click "Uninstall. Remove

the USB drive and restart your system.
Try connecting the device again, i think this should solve the problem.

Sd don't work


Hi:
Does your SD card reader show up as a drive when you go to : "My Computer" ? if it does, insert your SD card again, and see if the pictures are veiwable when you double click on the drive icon.

If the drive is not showing up in the my computer page, the driver might not be installed or the actual drive might be dirty or defective. You can check this by going to "control panel" , "system", and then "device manager." The SD card device should show up without any yellow exclamation points by it. If any devices have exclaimation points by them, you need to research what they are and find the proper driver for them to work.

I have a 8gig sd card and my sr1519x cannot read it. Do I need different drivers?


If your card reader can access another sd card then your reader is fine. You do not need different drivers for different cards, you only need drivers for the reader itself. The card may not be accessible for usage until you format the card itself. If you don't have access to another sd card, go to the device manager and look for any yellow exclamation marks. If you see any, then you may need to update or re-install the drivers for the device. If you see the drive in my computer, try to right click on the device and a pop up window should appear to format the sd card. The only other thing that I can think of is that if you are using a card adapter, it may be locked to read and write data to the sd card. If so, there is a little slide switch on the adapter. I hope this helps.

Multimedia audio controller


This indicates that the sound drivers are missing from your computer. You will have to identify the sound card that is installed on your computer before proceeding with downloading the correct driver. To identify the sound card, follow the steps below (Assuming that you are using Windows XP)

  1. Open Device Manager (Right-click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager)
  2. The hardware whose drivers are missing will appear as Unknown device, so it’s easier to locate the device.
  3. Right click on the unknown device and click on Properties.
  4. Under the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down box.
  5. You should see a code similar to this
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27DC&SUBSYS_30868086&REV_01\4&1E46F438&0&40F0
  6. The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:
    Vendor ID = 8086
    Device ID = 27DC
  7. Once you have obtained both the IDs, proceed to www.pcidatabase.com . There you can either search for the vendor from the vendor ID or directly get information about the device along with the vendor name by searching with the device ID.

No sound


Yes goto your control panel, open Sytem and see Device Manager. If there is any icon with yellow color in the list, it means you have missing driver. If you have any missing driver that might be for your audio controller. If so then you have to install the driver for the device. Install the driver and enjoy.

Note: If you don't have driver then Ask Me for that with your sound card manufacturer name and model no.

Thanks
